I want the Minister/Secretary of Education to ensure that all students are substantively taught about the climate emergency and ecological crisis. I want this to become key content in all subject areas, not just geography or science. I want teachers to be trained in how to teach about these difficult topics sensitively and to be given the funding and resources to do this.
I want vocational courses to include the green skills necessary to bring the UK to net-zero emissions by 2050 and make us world leaders in sustainable technologies and I want all education buildings to be retrofitted to net-zero emissions by 2030.
Therefore, I want the minister/secretary to implement a Climate Emergency (and Biodiversity) Education Act and include the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher training.
